2.4L snorkel

I hate my CAI and I have been wanting to replace it with a snorkel for a while but I haven't been able to find one that fits the 2.4L. I found this on Northridge4x4.com and I e-mailed them and they said this would fit the 2.4L
is that true? IDK if I believe them, does the 4.0 and 2.4L take the same snorkel kit? I have an 06 2.4L

I dont know if the 4.0L and the 2.4L have the air intake system or not... However, I have the 2.4L with a ARB Safari snorkel, and I love it!

Did you buy the 4.0L snorkel from 4wd.com and install it on the 2.4L? the link you posted was for the 4.0L 6 cyl. it says.

The 4.0L snorkel should fit on a 2.4L.

That is some great news, no I can get rid of this damn CAI. Anyone else object to the 4.0L snorkel not fitting the 2.4L?

The location of the air box. Is there enough room beside the air box?
Make some pics of the pass. side engine compartment.

In a 4.0L it looks like this.
You can see the metal plate at the side of the air box and the hose on it goes under the battery to the snorkel.

The 4.0L snorkel will fit. But you need an airbox with a filter for it.

How does it look in the front?
You have to install these thing somewhere on th box. That┤s where the hose connects to the airbox.



Perhaps you can install it under the airbox.

It will fit. You only have to find a way to connect the hose to the airbox.

Btw it also fit with A/C.

Ask them to send you a pic of the airbox with the installed snorkel.
In the install instructions they only show the 4.0L.

I really like the snorkel. That makes you feel very safe in deep water crossings.
When I was wheeling the last time the water was deeper than I thought and all fender flares were completey covered with water. Some water came into the insde through the softtop zippers. But the engine worked fine. Without a snorkel that would have been a very expensive water crossing.
